Life takes on meaning when you become motivated, set goals and charge after them in an unstoppable manner. ~Les Brown
As I look at what’s coming next for me this year and mapping out my goals and plans, I realize that nothing can stop me from getting what I want but me.
The same is true for you too. Believe that! Not other people, not your dog, not the latest incident that occurs in the world…nothing and nobody can stop you.
So we have to be relentless, be action-oriented, be awesome and be fierce in our quest to get what we say we want.
Let’s be unstoppable. Are you with me?
Your year of awesome: 12 Ways to Be Unstoppable in 2017
I follow through with commitments.
This is your affirmation this month. When you make a commitment to someone, stay true to your word. When you make a commitment to yourself, it is no less important than commitments to others!
Lastly, craft a schedule that gives priority to your commitments so you can follow through with ease.
Conversation is food for the soul.
Communication is the cornerstone of any interpersonal relationship (professional or personal). The quality of any relationship is no greater than the quality of the communication. Unfortunately, interpersonal communication skills are rarely taught in school so here are a few tips to ensure that when you converse with others, you do so effectively.
- Be clear and assertive. It’s unfair and unproductive to expect others to read your mind.
- Consider the other person’s point of view. Your way is not always the right way.
- After you speak, listen. Period.
- Avoid assumptions. Many communication problems are the result of poor assumptions.
I embrace success.
You can easily establish daily habits that bring you the success you desire. Here are a few ways:
- Define what success means to you (not what someone else says success supposed to look like) and be clear about it.
- Embrace your failures. The road to success is paved with your failures along the way. Decide to be okay with failure and to learn from it.
- Ask questions. Never be afraid to ask questions because the answers only help you become successful.
- Stay focused and never give up.
- Surround yourself with successful people.
- Keep your eyes open for unexpected gems. You might encounter wonderful things that you weren’t anticipating. Discover the beauty along your path to success. You’ll then be inspired to continue.
- Expect delays and challenges. If you do, you’ll be less distracted when they occur.
- Don’t sweat the small stuff. Avoid letting minor issues deter you from your goal.
- Def have fun with the journey of success!
My words and actions reflect my heart and soul.
Your words and actions are the true measure of your character so use them wisely and take responsibility. Another way to reflect your heart and soul is to control your decisions, emotions, attitude, and be mindful of how you affect the heart and soul of others.
Practice forgiveness. Throw away grudges. Wish others well even when you feel disappointed by their behavior. Watch your self-talk because the words you use internally matter tremendously.
My kindness is a powerful weapon.
Oh, yes, it truly is! Kind words break barriers that exist in the world. Expressing positive sentiments to others helps to achieve unity. Focus each day to achieve oneness through sincere and caring words.
Provide hope, help, and understanding when you can. Be grateful for the chance to help others. You see, kindness directly influences your propensity for happiness. Not only that, it improves your health, the recipient’s health, and all of our happiness!

Patience is one of my virtues.
Having patience means that you allow others the time and space to do whatever it is they seek to do. Exercising patience consistently builds your character and increases your perseverance and stamina in future situations.
Life will provide many opportunities for you to demonstrate patience with others and yourself, especially. Approach all challenging situations as chances to practice this skill. Realize that the more you “practice” patience, the better you’ll get at being patient.
I bring prosperity into my life.
Prosperity is your destiny! But it can be quite elusive in understanding how to create a prosperity mindset. I have the perfect game for you to play to help. It’s called the Choosing Prosperity Game.
I play it often and it has done wonders in solidifying within me an abundance consciousness (versus one of scarcity).
Try it for yourself so that you can keep a wealthy, prosperous mindset.
Creativity flows from me.
Creativity is important to achieving success in any area of your life. By enhancing this inherent trait (yes, you are already creative!), you are able to fully enjoy all that the world has to offer. Creativity allows you to find elegant solutions to any predicament, resolve conflict, reveal optimal paths for action, produce works of inspiration, and solve problems.
Make time to enhance and strengthen your creativity. Like a muscle, creativity requires a regular workout to stay strong and flexible. This work is paid back over and over again.
Success doesn’t come to you. You go to it.
Oh, how I wish it came easy. Nevertheless, we have to go for what we want and if we want it bad enough, we won’t let anything stop us!
Study the actions of successful people, set goals AND action plans, take time to think about the big picture and then draw in the lines of how you’re going to get there.
Lastly, just do what you have to do to get where you want to go. Sometimes, that means declining party invitations, working on less sleep for a little while, sacrificing time elsewhere, or delaying gratification but don’t give up. Success will come to those who pursue it diligently. #GoodNews
Believe you can and you’re halfway there.
If you believe in yourself, you can achieve your dreams. It helps when others believe in you but it’s not necessary. Don’t wait on someone else to validate you or your ideas.
Remember, the moment you think you can’t do something, you can’t. You know that negative feelings arise from time to time and that’s okay. However, you need to keep a positive image of the big picture in your mind at all times.
Inspiration and genius are one and the same.
You are a genius and a master at what you do. I know this and you know this so what I want you to do is know that the intelligence of the universe is available to you (inspiration) at any moment.
Not only do I want you to look around and draw inspiration from what you see around you (genius move), but also keep your eyes open to how you can inspire others.
Having less than I need drives me to work harder.
Sometimes our challenges are what inspire us most to work harder (smarter). Trying times test your ability and resolve. Therefore, use challenges to learn and grow.
Stay calm when you run into complications. Often, you’ll need to go against the crowd (resist the status quo!) or overcome your own resistance.
Ultimately, interpret demanding situations as an opportunity to grow and enhance your performance.
Over to you…
